“I’m a Genius! Who Knew?”

I am sitting here at the Apple Bar with Jason the "Genius". He is deftly juggling 2 clients with 5 devices at once, seamlessly. Jason is; engaging, relaxed, intelligent, knowledgeable with a great sense of humour.   After a moment, it occurred to me, I am all of those things, too. Does this make me a genius as well? Why not! Looking up genius I found (according to Google) 1) ...exceptional, intellectual, or creative power or other natural ability. or 2) a person who is exceptionally intelligent or creative either ...

Don’t Add Another Thing to Your To-Do List Until You Do This

  I know your type. You run all day, likely holding your breath, you rarely (or never) have time to enjoy a relaxed dinner with your family, and you wake up every morning dreading the day ahead. Imagine if you could be in Bizarro World and you suddenly open your eyes feeling enthusiastic about your life, you browse a bookstore on a whim, and even have a quiet mind for most of the day. Call me crazy but this is possible. Ask yourself: What is really ... Read more

From Chaos to Freedom!

Does Your Reality Really Suck Way Too Often? Life is so crazy busy you can hardly stop to check if you are still breathing! Imagine looking at your life and seeing something different? Imagine being able to stop to smell the roses, have a relaxed dinner with the family or friends. How about waking up feeling rested and ready for the day and actually looking forward to all of it!   Seems impossible, you say. Well if you continue the way you are now ... Read more

Give peace a chance

I didn’t know what peace really meant. When I was young it meant a very small portion of something as there were eight of us to share and as kids our piece was always small. I figured out the difference as I grew up. As a teen it came in the saying “Peace, man”. There was “give peace a chance” that John Lennon said in the 60’s, from a bed holed up in the Queen Elizabeth Hotel with Yoko Ono in ... Read more

How discerning are you?

First off, I felt my quote was a lame post with no blog added. Not a bad quote just lazy on my part so decided to write something that the quote triggered in me, discernment. How can we be more aware of this mismatch of standards ahead of time or deal with it when it happens? Being discerning is pretty important in business. We often do not have choices who work with or for. Deciding how important your sense of well being ... Read more

“There are four questions of value in life…”

“There are four questions of value in life... What is sacred? Of what is the spirit made? What is worth living for, and what is worth dying for? The answer to each is the same. Only love.” (Don Juan deMarco - 1995) -Johnny Depp How would you answer each question? I would love it if you can add them to the comments. Read more

Life is too short to be anything but happy!

"There comes a time in your life, when you walk away from all the drama and people who create it. You surround yourself with people who make you laugh. Forget the bad, and focus on the good. Love the people who treat you right, pray for the ones who don't. Life is too short to be anything but happy. Falling down is a part of life, getting back up is living." Unknown This quote says so much to me. I used to ... Read more

I will get to it later…REALLY! Procrastination or laziness, which is it?

Have you ever put something off until later, and later never came? Maybe you rationalized that it really could be done later, and then later becomes last minute. Does procrastination seem like a destination? A place you go when you don’t want to get something else done? Have you turned procrastination into a science or event? Each time you schedule in that “JOB” something “MORE IMPORTANT” must be done first. When you put that “task” off do you feel justified somehow? When you look back at the “deed” ... Read more

Have you |communicated| your |expectation| to your |employees?

[tweetmeme source=trcoaching] What do you do when your employee acts like the office is their personal domain? I know that this may sound very familiar to some of you.  I will describe the situation that lead up to this coaching event. Employer #2 John, (not his real name, of course and as there are 2, someone has to be) has walked into the office mid morning after being out of the office for a meeting. The receptionist, we will call Sue, is chatting with ... Read more

HE! IS! WRONG!

Julie has often wondered what IS her business, have you? Actually she really didn't think about it as it never occurred to her there what things weren't. (Is there a bit of Julie in you? There is in me!) Why do discussions always end in an argument? How the arguments always start… Julie travel along in her day doing and chatting and being. Then she starts up a conversation with say, her beloved. She actually has many in her day, but not all of them stick ... Read more
